110 Vendors Working to Secure Containers From Modern Threats
Security is top of mind in nearly every sector of technology today, and that includes containers. One of the early promises of containers is that they offer a more agile method of application deployment, with multiple native security capabilities inherited from Linux. The native security features of containers, however, might not be enough to stop all modern threats, which is why a number of vendors are offering different types of container security services. Among the vendors is container market leader Docker Inc., which has several open-source efforts that aim to advance security. Rival container vendor CoreOS is also active in the security space with its Clair vulnerability static analysis tool for containers. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at 10 vendors that are providing container security technology and services.

Tenable Network Security acquired container security vendor FlawCheck in October 2016 and in January embedded its container scanning capabilities in the tenable.io service. The container security capability in tenable.io scans applications for known vulnerabilities in containers.
Capsule8 is still in its stealth mode and has yet to officially release its container security product. In a video interview with eWEEK earlier this month, co-founder Dino Dai Zovi said his firm is building a container-aware, real-time threat protection platform for Linux-based production environments.
